This is a plug-in to Artemis that enables you to view and transfer files from a local machine (e.g. PC/MacOSX/UNIX) to another remote file system (i.e. any other file system that you have ssh access to). The main areas where this is useful are:
file management for both local and remote files. Files can be transferred by dragging and droping between file systems. Multiple files can be selected and transferred in this way.
launching Artemis and ACT with sequences and tab files from files on the remote machines.
running BLAST and Fasta searches can be sent from the local machine that is running Artemis and run on the remote machine. To do this the software (BLAST and Fasta) need to be set up on the remote side (see the section called Configuring Searches to be run via SSH).
